Why Low Carb?
Study design & results in a nutshell:
5 weeks, low(ish) vs. high carb (40 vs. 58%) with the calorie difference split between protein (23 vs. 16%) and fat (37 vs. 27%). In other words, the low(ish) carb diet was higher in protein and fat. And there was 2 versions of each diet — a high and low glycemic index. Lots of crossing over; all in all, weak intervention but decent study design & execution.
